Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer Review
Hey all beauty geeks!!!
Today I am going to review Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. Eye shadows are my makeup drugs and I am fond of both high-end as well as budget eye shadows. However, irrespective of the brand, the eye shadows are not enough to make your eye makeup look stunning and long-lasting. I learned this the hard way that an eye shadow primer is more a necessity rather than a luxury. After experimenting with cheap eye primers, I finally decided to splurge on an eye shadow primer and bought the cult favorite – Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. Let us find out is it worth the hype.
What the brand says:
‘A featherweight primer that creates a perfect canvas for cream and powder shadows. Eye shadows are intensified, crease-proofed and ready for action for 24+ hours; because you never know how long the night will last.
- Intensifies Shadow Color
- 24-hour Wear
- Crease-Proof, Fade-Proof
- Colorless Formula’
Packaging: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer comes in a slim tube with a decent nozzle. The best part of the tube packaging is that you can control the amount you need and can notice when the tube is empty. The nozzle is a little big in size but I think helps a lot in getting the required quantity out.
Shade: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer is beige in color but becomes sheer post blending. It might not help to cover the dark eyelids but may give a slight tint to the eye lids.
Texture: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer has a very different texture compared to other eye primers I have used. It is little watery and thin and not at all tacky. It blends to a little shiny finish. You need only a tiny bit to cover the eye lid. The only issue is because of the thin texture the primer may separate after some time. You need to massage the primer in the tube to get rid of this problem.
Pros of Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer:
- Very long lasting.
- Makes eye shadows creaseless.
- Blends easily.
- Eye shadows blend quickly on the primer.
- Very tiny amount required.
- Sleek packaging.
Cons of Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer:
- The product has a tendency to separate.
- Does not make eye shadows super vibrant.
- Little expensive.
- Unavailability in India.
Overall Thoughts: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer was not an impulsive buy, but rather a very planned and researched buy. The reason was the price point. However, after using it, I have never regretted buying it. It makes even the cheapest eye shadows stay long and blend with ease. I have oily lids and the shadows do not crease on me at all. It even helps the cream products not to crease or fade. Overall, a complete winner in my book and will recommend to every eye makeup lover.
